The story of ‘Time Machine’ reflects Wells's socialist political views, his view on life and abundance, and the contemporary _____ about industrial relations.
Question 1 Explanation:
This is a really tricky question. You need to understand the sentiment of the author to truly understand what is being said in the sentence. Well’s views are socialist, so in a way, his views would be centered around those of social welfare. How would he treat industry? Well, not in a pleasant way. Options A and C are unrelated in the given context, option E goes against the grain of reasoning in the sentence and option D is too extreme an emotion. The perfect representation would be option B, which means ‘an acute but unspecific feeling of anxiety; usually reserved for philosophical anxiety about the world or about personal freedom’.
We are always getting away from the present movement. Our mental existences, which are ________ and have no dimensions, are passing along the Time-Dimension with a uniform velocity from the cradle to the grave.
Question 2 Explanation:
Does the author pass any judgment on our mental existence or does he simply state how they are? From the given context, we are inclined to select the latter. This makes option B the correct answer. Options A, C and D are opinions we cannot be sure of. Option E (ephemeral means lasting for a very short period of time) starts talking about their duration of existence rather than what they are, and hence can be ruled out.
Some people who talk about the Fourth Dimension do not know they mean it. It is only another way of looking at Time. There is no difference between time and any of the three dimensions of space except that our _______ moves along it.
Question 3 Explanation:
This is a tricky one, in the sense that you need to establish the meaning of the sentence and what does it mean. The word ‘consciousness’ means ‘a sense of one's personal or collective identity, including the attitudes, beliefs, and sensitivities held by or considered characteristic of an individual or group’. What moves along time? Our body or our sense, our being? Since time is being separated from its physical implications in the given case, we select the latter, our being. The best option to reflect this sentiment is option A.
The best punctuation is that of which the reader is least conscious, for when punctuation, or lack of it, ________ itself, it is usually because it ________.
Question 4 Explanation:
This is a question driven by vocabulary. Obtrude means ‘push to thrust outward’ and if punctuation obtrudes, that is it forces itself on you, it would offend for sure. Once you have finalized the first word in this case, the second one is an easy choice. Offends directly fits in the given case and it highlights what happens when something obstructs.
The law prohibits a person from felling a sandal wood tree, even if it grows on one’s own land without prior permission from the government. As poor people cannot deal with the government this legal provision leads to a rip-roaring business for ________,who care neither for the ________ nor for the trees.
Question 5 Explanation:
We need two negative words in this case. Touts means ‘One who sells advice about gambling or speculation (especially at the racetrack)/ Someone who buys something and resells it at a price far above the initial cost’. Tout is a negative word representing people who are involved in illegal activities and only care about money. The second word in this case is poor. Obviously, touts would not care for the poor.
